When looking for a company to sponsor a conference, you need to ask yourself certain questions.
Firstly, you need to ask yourself whether the company under consideration really needs the publicity that it would get, as a result of sponsoring the conference. This is because, in most cases, companies sponsor conferences in exchange for publicity.
Secondly, you need to ask yourself whether the company under consideration really has the financial wherewithal to give you the sponsorship you need for the conference. If, for instance, you are looking at a company whose finances are such that, for instance, it can’t even afford to pay for the payroll processing services offered at iPay.ADP.com by the company known as ADP, then chances are that it won’t be in a position to afford sponsoring a conference either: even if it wants to.
Thirdly, you need to ask yourself whether the company under consideration really has the inclination to offer sponsorships. You will come to learn that there are some companies that, as a matter of policy, don’t offer sponsorships. Those may be companies in need of the publicity that sponsoring a conference offers. They may also be companies with the financial wherewithal to offer the sponsorships. But it emerges that, as a matter of policy, they simply don’t offer sponsorships.
